[asa] More on Collins and TE in Christianity Today

Stan Guthrie's column in the current Christianity Today (no link available)
includes a brief discussion of the Tiktaalik find and some brief comments
from Francis Collins. A quote from Guthrie: *"If evolution, messy and
circuitous as it appears, is true, then God is more mysterious than I
imagined -- but no less God."* I just think it remarkable that CT (and its
sister publication Books & Culture) is opening this door. It will be
interesting to see the letters to the editor in the next issue. The letters
in this issue, responding to the January issue's interview with Francis
Collins, were mostly reactionary. Maybe someone in the ASA leadership
(Randy? Ted?) should take the opportunity to send in an "offical" note from
the ASA -- I would suggest not specifically endorsing TE or any other
position, but just noting that many serious evangelicals involved in the
sciences agree with Guthrie's inclination that science and faith need not be
at war.
